– Barbecue Cookout
– Screening of Dubai World Congress DVD
– Discussion by Fali Shroff, “TRAVELS IN RURAL GUJURAT TO ZARATHUSHTI
HOMES: ACTION TO ASSIST”
Description: In the 2010 Summer Meeting, The New York Chapter of WZCC examines commerce from two informed and fascinating perspectives. The DVD of the World Zoroastrian Congress recently held in Dubai highlights the strong communities and foremost development Zoroastrians initiate in every locale they enter. We can observe the physical infrastructure and social organization Zarathushtis build and contribute throughout the world as they live.
On the same day, we have a chance to see and support our community from another angle. Fali Shroff has returned from a trip to Gujurat where he has investigated the conditions of rural and impoverished Zarathushtis. He has documented his journey photographically to show us the poignant facts on the ground.
Fali has vibrant ideas for how individuals and the Chapter can vastly assist challenged Zarathushtis. In their context, these folks are the community leaders of those around them. With information and the Zarathushti spirit, we can improve the prospects for commerce, wellbeing, and happy lives for rural struggling farmers and their communities. It is do-able!
We are arranging a Barbecue Cookout (with a vegetarian option) for the Summer Meeting. Casual dress is appropriate and the menu will surely include refreshing watermelon!
